Scam - Door-to-Door Sales

Police in Chiltern are warning residents about a door-to-door sales scam involving young men and women claiming to be ex-convicts trying to earn some money.

We have recently been contacted by residents in Little Kingshill, Chalfont St Peter, and Jordans reporting these individuals knocking on doors locally.

The bogus salesmen target one area at a time and knock at doors claiming to be ex-convicts on a young offenders’ scheme and try to sell the occupant everyday households products such as dusters and house cleaning products at high prices.

Bogus salesmen are not involved in any officially recognised offender rehabilitation programme and many do not carry Pedlar’s Certificates which are issued by the police and permit people to sell door-to-door.

If any salesperson comes to your door, you should ask to see their Pedlar’s certificate - these are only issued to individuals under very strict conditions. You can contact the police station it was issued at in order to prove if it’s genuine. Selling door-to-door without this certificate is a criminal offence.

Deputy Area Commander, Chief Inspector Bobbi Rai says “I would encourage all our residents not to buy from these people and to take the time to reflect and research before making a decision to purchase. Every year the Police and Trading Standards receive many enquiries from people who have fallen for the sales patter, have parted with their money and then realized they have paid over the odds for products or that the work done is of very poor quality.”

“These people may not only be applying pressure on residents to buy their products at inflated prices but may also be involved in other criminal activity. As such it is important that residents call us and let us know this is happening in their neighbourhood to give us the opportunity to check out whether their activity is indeed lawful. Please call us on 101 and let us know.”

Residents are reminded that they can request a free no-cold calling sticker for their front doors by emailing their name and address to communitysafety@chiltern.gov.uk and putting ‘no-cold calling sticker’ in the subject line or by calling the Community Safety Team on 01494 732089. If a doorstep seller comes to your door you can just point at the sticker and ask them to leave. If they refuse to leave or return they are committing a criminal offence.

Thank you.
